    Surely these must exist? Don't really want spaghetti where not necessary?

    Aha... And there's the ZyXEL PLA-470 v2 200Mbps Homeplug AV 4-port Ethernet Switch :)

    Thanks... Read a review of it, but they didn't seem impressed with its speeds?

    I couldn't get my PLK300's to work with anything, and LInksys website is a mess with flash files appearing and disappearing all the time.

    I've had good results with Zyxel, but why not just use a single homeplug and a straightforward Fast Ethernet switch? Available plugs maybe?

    Just seems more sensible to get a single dedicated unit if there is one (no additional unit sitting there plugged in wasting space/power). And assuming you get over 100mbps, then any ethernet switch might unecessarily congest it?
